Winemaker's Notes:

This classic foothill zinfandel showcases jammy berry fruit aromas accented by red spice scents and hints of truffles and oak vanillin. Its rich, focused, brambly flavors are supported by firm but supple tannins and persist into a long, fruit-filled finish. This Zinfandel beautifully complements grilled and barbecued meats, rack of lamb, and pasta in red sauce.
